JavaScript Developer - ProdPad

Brighton and Hove

Closing date: 02/08/2019

ProdPad is cloud-based product management software used by 1000+ companies, including market leaders like Bose, WP Engine, Rackspace, Autodesk, and Automattic.

It’s a "software as a service" (SaaS) web tool designed to help teams build better products. By providing a single interface that collects all of the input from an organisation's broad base of users (both external prospects & customers, and internal groups - like sales, customer care and development), ProdPad provides product managers a beautiful interface to organise their product backlog, build their roadmap, and send their requirements to development via any of our incredibly useful integrations.

When hiring, we are always on the lookout for ways to hook up with the best and most interesting candidates out there. We go beyond the standard “job ad” approach - attending conferences, setting up and sponsoring local meetups, setting tech challenges (which we pay for) so candidates can see what life is really like at ProdPad, and of course offering flexibility to enable our team to balance their work and personal commitments.

Job Description:

We are currently looking to hire a JavaScript Developer to join our expanding dev team. This role will suit someone with proven experience as a JavaScript / Front-end developer, who’s self-motivated and likes to see their code regularly deployed to production!

 

About the Job:

In this job, you'll contribute to all things JavaScript in our codebase while working closely with our UX designer and other developers in the team.

We run 2 week development sprints where you’ll be working on a range of tasks from bug fixes, R&D to new features that excite our customers. As we deploy code twice a week, you’ll likely get to deploy to production at least once a sprint.

You'll get to work with a solid tech stack that includes exciting technologies such as: VueJS, WebSockets, NodeJS, RxJS and EventStore.

 

The role will include the following activities:

  • You'll be working with our development and UX teams in an agile fashion to deliver iterative improvements that we can get in front of customers.
  • You'll be continuously improving our core app as it grows including implementing machine learning and other exciting improvements into the product across various areas.
  • You'll get to research and implement the best technologies that will allow the product to be fast, responsive, and usable such areas as event stream processing and real-time collaboration. .
  • You'll own your code and make sure that it's clear and well maintained to have other developers jump in on as the engineering team grows.
  • You’ll be an integral part of the team, enjoying direct input into suggesting and discussion future product developments.

This is not an exhaustive list. One of the many benefits of working at ProdPad is that as a rapidly growing company, there is plenty to put your stamp on within the organisation. If you have ideas - share them, you never know where it might lead!

 

About you:

You’ll have proven experience as a JavaScript / Front-end developer and be a self-motivated, quick learner that enjoys working within a team. You won’t just be a code monkey, you’ll be someone that wants to actively seek and solve problems alongside other developers. You’ll be happy to give and receive PR improvements and not be worried about asking for input. You will get to deploy and see your code regularly pushed to production and get stuck into with anything from shiny new features to bug fixes.

 

And of course, you’ll be able to work as a team player across ProdPad, clearly communicating priorities, needs and expectations with everyone. We use a mixture of great tools (besides ProdPad, of course!) including Slack, email, and occasional meetings at the beach to keep us all on the same page.

 

 
Skills Range:
